Well I just finished my Royal Rumble PPV in my Universe Mode. Some highlights from the PPV included my CAW winning the IC Title for the third time in a triple threat match with The Miz and Chris Jericho. I got the win after Miz hit his finisher on Jericho, and I threw Miz out the ring and pinned Jericho. Perfect heel victory.
I also had Ziggler retain the World Title in a match against Randy Orton. The finish came when Orton jumped off the top rope only for Ziggler to catch him in midair with a super kick. EPIC.
I also had The Rock defend the WWE Title in a rematch with John Cena. Great match with many great spots. Some highlights included Cena catching The Rock off the top rope with a Attitude Adjustment, The Rock delivering a elbow drop off the top rope and destroying the announce table that Cena was laying on. The finish came when Cena hit his comeback on The Rock, then he went for the AA, but Rock countered into a Rock bottom, followed by a people's elbow. I was playing as The Rock and I wanted to keep the title on him to possibly do Rock/Brock over the title at Mania.
Then came The Royal Rumble match. I played as my CAW, and my brother played as his CAW. His CAW came in at number 5 and eliminated 8 men and lasted 21 minutes before my CAW eliminated him, was a funny moment, so after he was eliminated he picked to play as the 25th entrant, the 25th entrant turned out to be Randy Orton and him playing as Randy Orton eliminated my CAW.
He got his payback and went on to win The Royal Rumble with him, the final two were Orton and Ryback. I was annoyed, my caw got to the final four, eliminated 7 men, and lasted 22 minutes, only to be eliminated by Orton. So Orton who lost to Ziggler earlier in the show over the World Title, ends up winning the Rumble. So he could go after Ziggler at Mania again for the World Title (assuming Ziggler's still Champion again). Or I could have Orton go after The Rock for the WWE Title. Decisions, decisions.
Overall great PPV. One of the best I've played.
I always edit the rankings so the guy I want to feud for the belt is the number 1 contender. Then if there is a number one contender's match for that belt I edit the match to make it a normal match. It's a pain in the ass but Universe mode is far from perfect. Like I said earlier, I turned injuries off yet guys are still getting injured,
This. I don't know how anyone can play Universe Mode without editing their cards and making their feuds. The complete random and bullshit the computer throws at you all the time isn't worth playing.
